A working group on the economic restoration and development of Syria, that consists of Syria’s opposition members, will gather for a session on Tuesday in the German Foreign Ministry.
The ministry said in a statement that Abdel-Baset Seida, the chairman of the Syrian National Council, and Riad Seif, a council’s member, will attend the session in the German capital.
This is the second session of this group in Germany with the first one held on mid-August. The session will be opened by German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle and will be also attended by representatives from 60 countries.
